Proof once again that in the Star Wars universe, you don't always have to listen to the producers!
While we recently discovered what the last trilogy could have looked like Star Wars directed by George Lucas , we learn today that the creator of the intergalactic saga could have offered us a prelogy far removed from the one finally released on the big screen. Indeed, according to the book The Star Wars Archives: 2005 – 1999 which follows the process of creating the second trilogy , Fox would have to l epoch voiced concerns to the filmmaker about plans to show Anakin Skywalker's childhood and make him a slave on Tatooine. A desire on which the director would have insisted, however, confident that he preferred to create a film that no one would want to see rather than taking up a story that has already been made.
The Fox would even be went so far as to say to George Lucas that he was about to “ destroy the franchise”. Threats and fears that obviously didn't work on the director, The Phantom Menace having despite a mixed critical success reported 1, 20 billion dollars at the global box office. Moreover, and although the first part of the prelogy is not considered the best episode of the saga Star Wars , the exploration of Darth Vader's past is a scriptwriting spring that has captivated fans and given real meaning to the films that followed. Whether it is the path of the young boy, his Jedi apprenticeship and his passage to the dark side, it is certain that his enlistment would not have had the same effect if George Lucas had not chosen to show his origins, as did his relationship with his mother.
